The river is rising, muddy and brown. Way up high all by himself stood this big old canada goose. Standing in the shadows of the bridge he watches over the river. Posted by Hello

I was invited to Kristine's School to do a cooking demo. I had a ball doing Mushroom meatballs and egg noodles. I think the kids enjoyed the lesson. I was amazed here I was first day of school and here I was teaching the class :-} Posted by Hello

Oh that Linux

I have been on the hunt the last few days to find a free Linux distribution that will work on my laptop. So far Mepis is the most promising. It is a live boot CD that can be installed to the hard drive. It would seem that Linux uses it's own language. And has a different ways of doing simple things like downloading programs and installing them. It comes as a distibution rather than just an OS, translation being when you install a linux distribution you get all the software you could ever need. Including a full office suite. Multimedia programs. The list is huge. If you have an old system that you want to breathe new life into try a small distro like BeatriX or Dam Small Linux or perhaps Puppy Linux. All these and more can be found for free at

My buddy Bob showed up today and stopped in for awhile. We only had a few minutes to visit as he was going to Castlegar but it was great to see him again. We go way back 20 years or so. He was my best man, twice Posted by Hello

This is a picture of my little Linux experiment. So far it has been a challange Posted by Hello

It's sunday afternoon

And I am attempting a fresh install of Simply Mepis a new Linux OS. It has been a bit of a journey but I think I can see the light. I am trying to install it on an old PII 400 with 128 ram. It looks pretty cool so far. I tried the live CD version first and decided to go for it. I will write soon and let you know how it went.

Saturday Again

Here we are again. It came so quickly I must say I am suprised. I spent the day with my family and enjoyed every minute of it. I look forward to Sunday and the rising of the sun.
